    any of the biggies...expedia orbitz cheaptickets...but if you find a good one I've usually always found it's cheaper to go through the actual airline once you find their quoted prices on one of the search engines. If you're a student statravel.com is good too.

    I've used sidestep.com for hotel rooms, and I bet they're good for flights, too. They search a bunch of different sites for fares and aggregate them for you.

    Try Cheap Flights, Airline Tickets, Cheap Airfare & Discount Travel Deals - SideStep
    They search multiple websites, not just their own prices. It's helped me find a good deal on a couple of occasions!

    Looks like Virgin Atlantic will be your best bet, go to their website directly and I found roundtrip from chicago to london leaving on march 11 and returning march 18 for $394 or so. Seems pretty cheap to me but I not an international traveler.
